Summary: Thought it would have been great but it wasn't. The only could thing is that there was 3G. it wasn't a smartphone. It didn't have apps that the play store would have. (Not even Tune In). i wouldn't recommend it to a friend or family it's very small, and sometimes apps would crash.
Summary: The pros: - Inexpensive compared to smart phones - Good set of basic features - Smaller size than IMO bulky smart phones The cons: - GSM in my area has inferior coverage to CDMA. Using this GSM phone gives inferior coverage compared to CDMA phone. - Phone software has a few bugs - occasionally screen blanks, then returns.
I'm not sure if you can find a better "dumbphone" out there

Summary: I have seen many sites that try to compare this feature phone to smartphones and that would be a mistake. This is NOT a smartphone (despite what Nokia tries to put on their website). That being said, it is probably the best non-smartphone that you can find that will not cost you an automatic data plan charge on your bill.
Summary: nokia makes good celphones. i've used a few of their phones before and they all have been rock solid, durable phones. i've had the asha 311 for 5 months now and im very pleased with it. its a cute little phone. however, ppl should note* it is a feature phone NOT a smartphone as many seem to get confused. it's a wonderful feature phone especially for the price. people shouldn't compare it to iphones or other smartphones re apps, etc.
